Did you bike to vote today?

I stopped by the polling booth on the way home from my ride. I wanted to pose in front of it for my February P-A-M, but there were no beverages being served.

I did not ride my bike to vote, but I voted. I forgot that I'm registered non partisan, but it was it all good, as the Democrats allow non partisans to vote in the primary. The Republicans do not. I wonder why that is? Anyway, I cast my vote...now, let the best man or woman win.

I rode my bike to vote... because I was riding into work today. I got there early, 10 minutes before they opened... I was first in line to vote.

My wife called and said she's not cooking all week because I did not vote for HC. In fact this was the first time I've cast a vote for a major democratic candidate now that I've switched to a NP last year.

Is withholding cooking worse than withholding sex in your household? I'm just curious since women usually withhold the latter when annoyed with their spouse.

I'm one of 3 quarter of a million L.A.County residents to request a mail in ballot. And I did actually mail it in.

I walked.

I didn't realize I was registered NP as well, but I still voted for a Democrat.

I was tempted to vote for Dodd just to see my one vote on the tally, but I didn't.

Teh bf and his mum did that too, and we mulled over it together last Friday. He said I get a say in who he votes for because I can't vote but the policies of whomever gets elected will affect me too. He's so sweet.

Anyway, he voted for Gravel. We were originally going for Kucinich, but he dropped out. Boo. Gravel is soooo similar though, and I'd vote for him over Clinton and Obama even if I'm both a woman and a racial minority.

And Huckabee, Gravel, and Paul too!!!
